      Was just at Tender Greens in Culver City and they had a great looking quinoa and broccoli side. I did not have but lots of people ordered it.

        Burger Lounge just opened up in Beverly Hills. I heard the quinoa veggie burger is pretty good.

              had it the other night at akasha.
              caveat: i've never had a quinoa dish that really impressed me.
              akasha was no different, forgettable but edible.

                I believe that's the nature of the beast..... That particular grain, I mean.....

                  i suspect that if it was made the way shamshiri grill makes their addas polo (a rice dish) i'd probably be much more receptive.
